This is a fabulous book. If you love authentic southern cooking prepared in a refined way then this is the book for you. Author and chef, Virginia Willis has an esteemed resume in the culinary world. She’s worked in television and has had another very popular cookbook, Bon Appetit, Y’all that chronicles generations of southern cooking.
Her latest book Basic to Brilliant Y’all takes what she considers 150 basic southern recipes and dresses them up to make them brilliant. The recipes turn from a simplistic weeknight dinner to something you would serve guests at a dinner party.
